Panel discussion given on December 3, 2009 in Berkeley, CA. Organized by the Oakland Raw Food Meetup. www.meetup.com/The-Oakland-Raw-Food-Meetup-Group
Initial announcements and introductions are given by Darcy Crosman, the founder of the meetup.
Five members of our community will be discussing various aspects of the raw food life style. Many of us would like to know more about the benefits of raw food and necessity of cleansing and fasting, colonics, super foods, and what we need to know to successfully transition into the winter on a raw food diet. Each will briefly discuss one of these areas and there will be plenty of time for questions and answers. Plus I happen to know there will be many in the audience who will be able to contribute the considerable knowledge they have in these areas.
Ben will be giving out free samples of his Chocolate Bliss and we will also have a refreshment stand with delicious raw food entrees and hors d’oeuvre type dishes by raw food chef Nikki Gilmore and dessert by Sergey. Their dishes will be available at affordable prices.
As we get closer, I may be able to give you more of what they will be offering. We will be going from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
There will be no meet up fee for this meet up.
